Because enough of us are new to the Bay Area that we don’t have pics with the Mission Peak pole.
Reading the AllTrails reviews, the out and back trail is less steep than the loop, so posting coordinates for the out and back hike. If people have strong feelings about doing the loop we can discuss.
Open to suggestions for post hike food/beers.

The wildflowers have started to bloom, so let's go to Mount Diablo while temps are still nice.
This is a State Park with an entrance fee, so carpooling is recommended. I have 3 spots in my car and will be leaving from San Mateo Caltrain at 8:20am.
